It’s officially the last weekend of summer.

It’s officially the last weekend of summer.

I had to write that twice to make myself believe it.   Wah.

To end the summer on the right note drink, I think you should make one of these.  It’s my favorite go-to summer cocktail (next to a gimlet, of course).   I’m not quite ready to give up my icy cold, gingery, limey, refreshing drinks just yet. No room for whining about the last weekend of summer when you’ve got this delicious drink to distract you.


  • Ice cubes
  • 1/4 cup vodka
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 cup chilled ginger beer
  • 1 lime wedge


  • Fill tall glass with ice. Add vodka and lime juice, then ginger beer; stir to mix. Garnish with lime wedge.

Have a fantastic weekend everyone!
